It’s the year of the bird

2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed. In honor of this milestone, nature lovers around the world are joining forces to celebrate the “Year of the Bird” and commit to protecting birds today and for the next hundred years. Join National Geographic, National Audubon Society, Birdlife International and Cornell Lab of Ornithology in celebrating the Year of the Bird.
